roosevelt, jackie kennedy, you know? those are the women whose stories feel close enough to connect with. many of the women in the higher floors, on the state floor, they seem like characters from a wonderful story because it was such a long time ago. it's history, and you read about it in books. to be in their presence seems a little disconnected. but the first ladies on the ground floor are the ones that i remember, i remember their real stories and their real -- i can picture their lives in an incredible way that makes me think about their challenges and struggles and how they used the space. >> the first ladies, their private and public lives. c-span's teaming up with the white house historical association for a first of its kind original series for television. first ladies: influence and image. airing over two seasons. season one begins presidents day at 9 p.m. eastern and pacific on c-span, c-span radio and c-span.org. >> next on booktv, peter bergen and a panel of contributors discuss the book "talibanistan" which explores the threat posed by extremists who operate between af
